is serious in itself, and if he is accurate, and james murdoch disputes it, but if the lawyer is accurate it shows that james murdoch knew there was other criminal wrong doing in 2008, and failed to report it to the police, and he also settled a case with a crime victim that came with a con ffidentiality clause, and he could have been buying silence, which in this country is an illegal act, and that's why i referred it to the police. >> what happened here? there was an e-mail from one reporter to another about illegal hacking going on that mr. murdoch apparently knew about, or at least the other officers said he did know about, and he sat in front of you and said he did not know about it? is that it in a nutshell? >> yeah, there was a voice message trance scribed that had been illegally hacked and he sent it to another journalists and the journalism got the documentation through court disclosure and at that point the lawyer and the editor of the paper go to murdoch and say we think we should settle the case, and here is a e-mail saying others were aware of hacking into the can company, an

the power in any way to compel the likes of rupert or indeed james murdoch let alone, rebecca brooks, who is of course, a british citizen. >> i think it is very unlikely that they can find a way to compel rupert and james murdoch because of the reason that they are foreign citizens. for rebecca brooks, it would be very difficult politically to decline the invitation, but even then it is not entirely sure. there are not very many precedents here. most people do appear before select committees when they have been asked to. we just don't know whether it is possible for them to invoke an old rool that means she absolutely -- rule that means she absolutely has to appear or else be found in contempt of parliament. i think they are just hoping that at least one of the trillo accepts their invie -- trillo accept trio accepts the invitation. >> the man who chairs the culture, sports committee put out the invitation to the mush dotches to -- the murdoches to join them for discussion. >> the police think the investigation is the first thing that has to be completed. that may take a few more months a

stepped up our investigation, you know, that, you know, rupert and james murdoch have been here today being open and honest with you as a committee, and i was very willing to come despite the fact that there are some legal issues around what i say. i hope that you think that when we saw the civil disclosure in december of 2010, we acted swiftly and promptly to deal with it. and the police investigation would not be open now, and there would not be a new criminal inquiry if it had not been for the information that "news international" handed over and i'm not saying that we haven't made mistakes, but the metropolitan police have repeatedly said as you heard last week, and the first committee heard last week, they repeatedly said there was no need for further criminal investigation. so, i think that everyone involved in 2007 would say now that the mistakes were made, but i hope that you feel that we've responded appropriately and responsibly since we saw the information in 2010. >> so, when you read the report, did that make you think, lower me, there arm se some things he that don't sta
